"It's an extraordinary thing, I will admit, to have [U.S. Sen.] Jesse Helms to throw a lunch for you. You know it's bad for both of our images."

U2's Bono Selected for TED Prize

RTE, October 20, 2004

 

U2 frontman and global activist Bono is one of three individuals to be awarded the inaugural (U.S.) TED Prize from the conference of Technology, Entertainment, Design in California.�

Bono will share the prize with Canadian photographer Edward Burtynsky and biomedical engineer Robert Fischell.

Each will receive $100,000 and the chance to have three wishes fulfilled by major corporations.

Companies affiliated with TED include global powers such as General Motors, Sony and Starbucks.

The three wishes of each honoree will be revealed during the next TED conference, set for 23 to 26 February 2005.

"We are exhilarated to have such extraordinary individuals as our inaugural winners of the TED Prize," said Chris Anderson, TED Curator and founder of the Sapling Foundation.

"We believe they will inspire the TED Community -- and perhaps many others -- to play a role in nudging our world toward a better future."
